Heavy periods blood clotting

Common Questions and Answers about Heavy periods blood clotting


Avatar f tn I'm seventeen, and sexually active. My periods are normal, and always have been. I have clotted before, but my mother said it was normal, and nothing was ever bigger than a quarter really. I'm not trying to get pregnant, but yes me and my boyfriend so have unprotected sex, and he does release in me. I would not be upset if I was to get pregnant, but I am not trying. I have had my periods regularly the whole time we have seen each other up untill this month.
Avatar f tn I have had a history of very un regular periods, until about two years ago I was on a birth control pill, which naturally regulated my period, and I had little no no pain, or heavy bleeding. Since I have been off my pill, I have had very heavy periods that last 7 days, and I am experiencing rather large blot clots, (which is why I think I am having such bad cramps). I just want to know how normal is it to have such large clots during menstration?
12205224 tn?1424030756 I am 53 years old. I have always had heavy periods, but lately my periods have lasted a long time, sometimes two weeks or more, and they become very heavy with lots of clotting. I have to wear two super plus tampons at a time and a pantiliner because they always leak. I hate it! What should I do? What can be done to make this more tolerable or stop altogether?
Avatar f tn Hello, You seem to be having the symptoms of metrorrhagia(heavy periods).Various factors causing it are endometriosis,ectopic pregnancy,hormone imbalance,endometrial hyperplasia,polyps,use of IUD’s and depo shots, sexually transmitted diseases,PCOS and benign and malignant pathologies of the uterus.Hormonal imbalance as a result of these birth control patches is the likely cause in your case. Get it evaluated from your gynecologist and get the birth control changed.
Avatar f tn It has been very heavy and she is also passing clots. What could this be? She has always had heavy periods but they have never lasted this long - with no let up yet.
Avatar f tn Later when I was 15 some cysts were found on my ovaries and then disappeared, however painful and heavy periods continue, in average it lasted a week and sometimes was twice a month. When I was about 18 I went to the doctors to advise my problem, and the doctor by just looking at me (im overweight) said that I had PCOS and that no further testing was necessary. I didnt even know what it meant until I looked it up but the doctor just gave me birth control pills for it.
Avatar n tn Well, im 19 and i've had blood clots and heavy periods since before i started highschool so my doctor put me on ortho tri cyclen lo but it didnt help because i still had the bad cramps, and blood clots. But my blood clots are really small and havent notice any bigger then a pinky nail(lol, im not trying to be funny). I told my doctor that im still getting heavy period on the bc pills and she told me that i need a stronger pill but decided not to because i fel like it hasnt helped me.....

Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Heavy menstrual periods or menorrhagia may be attributed to a variety of issues. Novasure endometrial ablation procedure is usually done for many women wherein child-bearing is completed. The procedure is considered minimally invasive and expected results range from notably lighter menstrual periods to absent menstrual flows. However, results and side effects may vary from patient to patient. It is best that you discuss this with your doctor for proper evaluation.
Avatar n tn I am 35 and have had three kids. I have had painful, heavy periods since starting at age 12. After having a breech baby, I ended up with a stage one bladder prolapse. Because of my heavy periods and the prolapse, my doc suggested surgery for the prolapse and a possible hysterectomy when I am closer to the age of 40. He felt I was still to young for a hysterectomy.
Avatar f tn Hi I'm 17 and I have a period every month and it lasts 2-3 weeks and it finishes for about a week and then starts again but I keep having blood clots in my period and my periods are heavy. Cancer runs in my family and I'm wondering if I should be worried about it or if it's nothing to worry about?
Avatar n tn My periods are heavy after i had my child also. But they were only 6 to 7 days long. Ask your ob.
Avatar n tn im at a loss...i would go to the doctors though. i do know my periods have been super heavy and i have been having more clotting than i did before but not hudge clots or anything.
Avatar f tn it's getting worse it was light for a week then for one day [5-6 hrs to be exact] it was bleeding non stop and i had like 6-7 blood clots and they're big then it went back to light bleeding then heavy bleeding again then for a day there was hardly any blood so i thought it's over!!
Avatar f tn I also have a lot of stress in my life due to OCD. When I do have a period they tend to be heavy with menstrual cramps. Sometimes I get clotting, but small pieces, and shreds, not balls, although sometimes they can be about an inch+ square but flattish. As my Mum was irregular I never worried about it and put it down to genetics and sometimes stress, but now I worry about PCOS and/or endometriosis. This year I have also become more regular (i.e. around 30-32 days although one was 24 days.
Avatar n tn This last cycle was very weird. I typically have a very heavy period with bleeding and some clotting, lasting from 7-8 days. This period started on Aug. 14th with the first 3 days being very. very light. Aug. 17-20th the flow was what I would call more than spotting, but still a light period compared to what is normal for me. The 21st.-26th. I had minimal spotting, meaning no need for a tampon, just some light staining noticeable on the T.P.
Avatar f tn im 5 days late for my period (never been late) i have done 3 hpts and they have all shown negative...i have had a spotting of blood which i have been told could be a sign of pregnancy (is this true?) my mood swings change constantly which isnt normal for me i dont feel the same can someone help???
Avatar m tn Hi- I am asking for some insight. I have done some reading online about Implantation bleeding vs. menstruation and am trying to figure out what could be going on. My husband and I had unprotected sex around the time my last period was 'supposed' to come (end of October)--I did not, however have it at this time. My last period started Sept. 25. I tested November 9th with a negative result. I also contacted my Doctor, who I am going to see on the 18th.
Avatar n tn I am 51 and have been in peri-menopause the past 5-6 years. At your age, I also had heavy periods with clotting. I think you are wise to get a transvaginal ultrasound but it is my bet, that you are in peri and your change in periods is hormonal.
Avatar n tn ok so i kinda need some advice my last three periods or what i am calling a period have been really abnormal and only lasting like 3 days but i have no period symptoms!!!! i have horrible cramping,fever (basically every bad thing we could have during periods) and super heavy bleeding & clotting ... during my periods but not lately!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn I take 600mg tablet 3-4 timeseach day I have my period and it has greatly reduced the clotting and heavy bleeding as well as the cramping.
Avatar f tn day 2 it continues, but i dont see any clotting like i see in my periods, its just bright red blood. I get pain ocassionally unlike my period.. I am unsure to see the doctor now.
Avatar n tn you might want to have her checked for any evidence of a blood clotting disorder ( rare). Birth control pills can be very helpful in alleviated heavy bleeding and cramps and might be a good option if her periods are interfering with her activities/school. If you don't want to go that route yet (many moms and daughters are reluctant) you could ask your/her MD to prescribe some progesterone and sometimes that will shorten and lighten up the flow. Good luck!
Avatar n tn After the 7th day I thought my period might be extended because of stress, but now it's been almost 3 weeks and I've noticed a lot of clotting. First the clotting looked more like dry-ish blood but now the bleeding seems more bright and so do the clots. I think that it is partially due to stress since my exams start in less than two weeks, but it can't be the only reason! or can it be?
Avatar n tn When I was on Clomid the 1st day of my period was heavy and red and then after that it was brown. I did have some clots now and then. I was only on it for 3 cycles and I got preggo....I am now 18 weeks!!
